Mana Pools National Park is in a tsetse fly and malaria region. Tsetse fly and mosquito bites can sometimes be irritating, so please bring along antihistamine tablets, cream or other appropriate medication, if you are prone to allergic reactions from insect bites. Wear loose fitting clothing on game drives, a light waterproof jacket may also help.
